Enjoying everything Coventry Transport Museum has to offer.


The last 150 years of Coventry’s history have been shaped, in part, by the rise and fall of its motor and cycle industries. In this time, around 475 bicycle and tricycle makers, 161 car manufacturers and 116 motorcycle manufacturers have operated in the city, touching the lives of millions of people.

Today, Coventry Transport Museum traces the paths of these industries through massive social change and momentous world events. It tells the fascinating story of the city, its inhabitants and their phenomenal achievements from the very first bicycles to world record-breaking cars.

Use the links on the left to explore the Museum's permanent exhibitions, or visit the What's On pages to find out about special temporary exhibitions and events.
